Futurama recreated in Lego blocks

Futurama is a show that just won't die. Since premiering in 1999, the animated sci-fi sitcom has been cancelled, revived, syndicated, made into movies and then revived again on TV networks and over a collection of DVDs. Now, it's in Legos.

Lego builder and graphic artist Matt De Lanoy has spent more than two years reconstructing the 31st-century world of Futurama out of the plastic bricks. The display measures about 5x7ft (1.53x2.13m) and is incredibly detailed; you can tell the man knows his Legos.

The gallery below shows a few parts of New York and other settings from the show, but to really get an appreciation of the time and detail De Lanoy put into his hobby obsession, check out his full Flickr collection. I wish I had the time to put together something like this, but I can't even free myself up to put together my Ikea bookshelves.

When it is meant by "two years" it's about the whole infrastructure of New New York. You did say you saw all of the photos on flickr.

HE SPENT TWO YEARS CREATING THIS??? Wow i feel sorry for him. Did he forget the scale of things? Nice try but if your going to take two years at least make it look half decent.
